About

Jay Sennett was born in Denver, Colorado, in the western United States. He transitioned from female to male in 1996.

He has worked in higher education, healthcare and nonprofit management. He eventually trained in the field facilities management, where he worked for a large Division 1 public University, managing logistics and operations for the School of Social Work.

Presently he is working on the Moxie series. 

The Moxie series has several goals. The first is to reflect Jay’s experiences transitioning in the mid-1990s. Changing genders at the dawn of the public internet seems both quaint and impossible, in our current age of carrying the internet with us everywhere. The second goal is to reflect how Jay has come to understand male and white privilege living as man for more than twenty years. The last, and most important, goal is to seek out and explore bold new metaphors describing transition and living as a female-to-male transsexual.

Jay lives in Ypsilanti, Michigan with his wife and cat.
